The sustainable city and community as we dreamed it.

The 2nd Science and Sustainability Festival took place in Ioannina on the 20th of March 2019 and it was a great success. The Fest was a parallel event of the International Congress “Crisis in Contexts” of the International Society of Cultural-historical Activity Research ISCAR. The aim of the Fest was to showcase the actions that are taking place in our country for the sustainability with the assistance of STEM. The themes of the Fest was:

  • Catapults
  • Biodiversity
  • Trash Art
  • Robotics
  • 17 Sustainable Development Goals
